An update from The Apple Basket

I have used hand dyed wool fabric on the centre green circle and on the orange centre hexagon.  The centre is embellished with hand embroidery and beads.  This is optional and we will be providing an embellishing kit for purchase if people want it.

We have chosen miniature primitive designed fabrics in autumnal colours for our 2016 Shop Hop Quilt.  Our quilt will be pieced with traditional quilt blocks around central stitchery blocks.  More to come ...

An update from Patchwork Passion

Patchwork Passion's 2016 Shop Hop Quilt is made in one of our favourite fabric lines - 1800s Reproduction Fabrics.It is made up of three rows of blocks of various sizes and is English Paper Pieced hexagons - another passion of the moment.

These are two of the first blocks. I will have more hexie flowers in pots to show you after the Christmas break.
